Have you seen this month’s Guest Star Stamper Winners yet?  They were amazing!  I am always in awe of how much talent is floating around out there!!!

Best Father’s Day
card was awarded to buszby!  I loved how she used score lines to create a diagonal grid and filled in the centers with the compass rose image from Father Knows Best.  I also loved the color scheme and all the small simple details she added to make the project perfectly balanced!

Best Boy Birthday Card was awarded to Kimberly Crawford.   She created the most unique background paper by using a sentiment from Ponf Life and one of the circular stamps from Father Knows Best.  It is such a great card that you could easily mass produce. 

Best Use of Garden of Life goes to Bridget Dickinson,  She made some of the most gorgeous patterned paper which features such a clever use of Garden of Life.  As soon as you see it, you’re going to want to pull out that set and try the pattern yourself!!!

As always, there are MANY other submissions that I feel are noteworthy!  I thought I would take a few moments to mention a few of the others!

Wiggydl
Wiggydl (Donelda) created this simple masculine card that is so appropriate for Father’s Day!  I love the variegated sunset background she created using a brayer.  The cattails just really set everything off!

used the swirl flower from Garden of Life to make cinnamon rolls on her Mother’s Day card this year.  I love how she stamped one layer in brown and the second layer in white embossing powder to look like frosting!

is a very young crafter, but I was very impressed with her creativity in changing the Father Knows Best sentiment to suit her needs.  The contrast of fonts is just fabulous!  I think that this girl is definitely going places!

This card by tylersmum05 (Molly B) is EXACTLY what I am going to create for my dad for Father’s Day.  It is so "him".  From the leather cord tied around the spine to the simple cattails.  I just think this is simplicity at it’s best!
